The Los Angeles Chargers (13-4) used a strong defensive performance to defeat the Baltimore Ravens 23-17 last Sunday as three-point road underdogs on the National Football League odds, avenging an earlier loss in Week 16 that cost them the AFC West title and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.
Chargers (+4) over PATRIOTS: The Chargers have been road warriors all season (8-1 straight up and against the spread - including at Seattle, Kansas City, Pittsburgh and now Baltimore) and are fully capable of another of another victorious East Coast trip. Unlike last weekend, when there were three games with a spread of a field goal or less, there are none of those this weekend.
The Los Angeles Rams will feature prominently this weekend as the National Football League playoffs will decide their respective championship games. Every team is good and every matchup could go either way.
In the NFC, the New Orleans Saints and Philadelphia Eagles will do battle in a rematch that had Drew Brees dismantle what looked to be an Eagles team in shambles, beating them easily 48-7.
For the Eagles, quarterback Nick Foles will try to keep that 2017 magic alive in this 2018 run. Philadelphia outlasted the Chicago Bears 16-15 on the road last weekend, and are now seen as something of a Cinderella entrant with their backup QB again taking the helm in the postseason.
